In addition to the new dental clinic, an integrated clinic continues to operate weekly, utilizing 200+ volunteers. The Tuesday evening clinic provides: medical, dental, mental health care, MNsure assistance, and resource connection. The goal of CARE Clinic’s project is to improve access to dental care among low-income residents of Goodhue County. In 2019, the clinic expanded from a volunteer-based urgent care (extraction only) clinic to one with expanded hours, staffing, and scope of services.

CARE Clinic ensures that no patient is turned away due to inability to pay.
